Very nice looking car!! Did you know the three exhaust tips are fake and attached to the rear apron? The functional tips are mounted on the bottom of the muffler like US spec cars. Still impressive.

Only disappointment is , where is the 5 speed with the foot clutch ? That makes it a sport car IMOP.

5 speed foot clutch in a 6 speed DCT world prove your preferences are obsolete.


DCT's are coming on 6, 7, 8, 9 and likely more speeds in the near future.

I have to tell you that even though I love my smart cab. I have owned sports cars since the my 56 MGA to my current Audi TT 3.2 V6 roadster.... but smart hasn't made a sports car in a long.........time. Just enjoy your car.

If by sports car you mean a large displacement gas hogging engine, sure, but if you mean sporty nature in spite of tiny displacement and fuel sipping, I'd take any smart with the BRABUS sports package. They're very sporty IMO...

Trust me I have a problem calling any car with roll up windows and a heater a sports car. There really hasn't been a sport car since the MG TF!!

I wonder how easy it would be to swap the manual into a DCT smart? I'd love to have the only manual Edition #1 .
